Black Box PAC Presents "Fuddy Meers"

(ENGLEWOOD, NJ) -- With shows such as Lynn Nottage’s Sweat, Sarah Ruhl’s How to Transcend a Happy Marriage, and the NJ premiere of Joshua Harmon’s Significant Other, the Black Box Performing Arts Center made a name for itself in Teaneck as the area’s premiere destination for immersive and cutting-edge plays. Now located on Palisade Ave in downtown Englewood, Black Box PAC presents David Linday-Abair's award-winning play Fuddy Meers from November 1-17 in their new space.

Fuddy Meers - presented in special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. - tells the story of Claire, who has a rare form of psychogenic amnesia that erases her memory whenever she goes to sleep. This morning, like all mornings, she wakes up a blank slate. Her chipper husband explains her condition, hands her a book filled with all sorts of essential information, and disappears into the shower. A limping, lisping, half-blind, half-deaf man in a ski mask pops out from under her bed and claims to be her brother, there to save her.

Claire's info book is quickly discarded, and she's hustled off to the country-house of her mother, a recent stroke victim whose speech has been reduced to gibberish. Claire's journey gets even more complicated when a dimwitted thug with a foul-mouthed hand puppet pops up at a window, and her driven husband and perpetually stoned son show up with a claustrophobic lady-cop that they've kidnapped. Every twist and turn in this funhouse plot bring Claire closer to revealing her past life and everything she thought she'd forgotten. It's one harrowing and hilarious turn after another on this roller coaster ride through the day of an amnesiac trying to decipher her fractured life. This poignant and brutal new comedy traces one woman's attempt to regain her memory while surrounded by a curio-cabinet of alarmingly bizarre characters. 

BBPAC’s production is directed by Matt Okin, Stage Managed by Anthony Altavilla, and features the talents of Shari Cohen, Michael Gardiner, Cassandra Guglielmo, Danielle MacMath, Mike Marcou, Ellen Revesz, and Laurence Wallace. Fuddy Meers is sponsored in part by Fairleigh Dickinson University, Dance Art Creative Center, Bauer Printing, and Mike Pessolano of Friedburg Properties.

Fuddy Meers plays Thursdays-Sundays at 8pm from November 1 though 17 at the Black Box Performing Arts Center, located at 49 East Palisade Ave in Englewood, New Jersey. All performances are at 8pm. Tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for students/seniors.Tickets are now available at www.blackboxpac.com. Group rates for 10 or more are available by calling (201)-569-2070.
